In general, the Canon grip has the same basic construction as the body, plastic and rubberized material covering a magnesium alloy frame like the 6D.

Are you sure about that? My bg-e2 is fully out of plastic, the 40d is magnesium.

Hmm yeah i know that all the 5d battery grips are magnesium, the 7d´s is too but the 60D´s is plastic.

I hope that they are making it out of metal (for the 6d) but i´m not sure^^

I think the BG-E7 has magnesium in the center, but the actual shell is plastic.
